So overwhelmed!

Yikes! I've been naturally curly all my life, but it's only in the last 8 years or so that I've not been fighting the curl and instead trying to embrace it and use different products to make it look decent.

I've been reading a lot of articles on here and trying to find products that are right for me, but there's so much information and I'm so overwhelmed!

I'm pretty sure I'm type 3b, high porosity, coarse, medium to high density

There's no right answer for everyone, I know that, but is there some type of product list or general tips for my type of hair? Or any advice you'd like to share??

Thanks in advance!
Hi Curlymarissa. Like you, I was overwhelmed with the amount of products available and not knowing which ones to use. I also have high porosity hair, 3a curls and growing out a kenetics perm. I bought my products before I even knew my hair porosity and curl type. Another lady on the forum put me onto the livecurlylivefree website which helped me a lot plus they also have an e-book which contains much more information (I haven't bought it yet) so maybe you can have a look at this. I've only started (3 weeks now) using CG friendly products and the first ones I'm currently using are the shea moisture range (see my signature). The first week I wasn't impressed so I clarified my hair with baking soda/conditioner then rinsed it with apple cider vinegar/water, put deep conditioner masque (mixed with olive oil) on for 1 hour, rinsed with cold water, scrunched excess water out with my hands, put leave-in conditioner in and really coated it, put the curling smoothie in and then left it to air dry. Went to bed in my satin bonnet and the next day, wow, I had curls I never knew I had. I thought originally I bought the wrong products for my hair but I just looked up best products for high porosity hair on the net and discovered I have the correct ones. Hope you find the right products and keep us updated.
